A pair of large Victorian style door knobs with "beehive" design in nickel plated brass. Smaller version also available.

These classic solid brass beehive door knobs have been coated in nickel with matching rose plates and fixing screws.

This design was extremely popular during the Victorian (c. 1837 - 1901) period and continues to be popular in today’s contemporary homes as well as period renovations.

These door knobs show an understated, but classic elegance from a period when quality was not compromised.

All our door knobs can be used on either tubular, mortise or rim locks as each rose plate is separate.

The door knobs are unsprung and rely on the spring in the door lock for their back and forth movement


Key Points
  • High quality design taken from an original door knob salvaged by us.
  • Solid brass nickel plated handles hand turned and aged.
  • Each set comes complete in its own box with door knobs, steel spindle, all fixing screws, hex head steel grub screw and individual Allen key for fitting grub screws.
  • Nickel finish to collar and rose plates.
  • All fixing screws also nickel coated to match.
  • The threaded steel spindle is grooved and threaded either end for fine adjustments. This is known as "The Pitts Mortice System".
  • Spindle also comes with a removable collar if existing lock housing is slightly smaller.
  • All grub screws now made from steel for durability.
  • Suitable for indoor use only.
Dimensions:  Please see specification section below
Specification for Victorian style nickel beehive door knob *
Metric Imperial
Door knob projection 76mm 2.95"
Door knob diameter 55mm 2.16"
Rose plate diameter 55mm 2.16"
Spindle length 125mm 4.92"
Spindle diameter 8mm 0.31"
Max door thickness 65mm 2.56"
* As these door knobs are handmade and finished, the above specification should act as a guide only.

Required Tools:

  • Screwdriver for wood screws
  • Allen key (included) for grubs screws
  • Pencil
(Always ensure you use the correct size screwdrivers)
DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN GRUB OR WOOD SCREWS OR USE POWER TOOLS AS THIS MAY RESULT IN FITTING SCREWS BEING DAMAGED.

Check assembly and that all parts are present before starting.
You should have x2 door knobs, x2 rose/back plates, x1 universal spindle with slide off packer, allen key for grub screw and fitting screws for rose plates.

  1. Insert spindle through door latch mechanism, ensuring that equal amounts of the thread project to each side of the door. Place x1 rose / back plate over spindle on one side and then screw on door knob.

  2. Carefully tighten grub screw ensuring that the grub screw is located into one of the key way recess's of the spindle and not onto the threaded part of the spindle. Failure to do so will result in the door knob working loose and unscrewing.
    Tighten grub screw carefully, but do not over tighten – ‘nip it up’ using the Allen key.

  3. At this point you must ensure the spindle is level / horizontal. Failure to do so may mean that the door knob assembly will stick during service and may fail or cause the door knob to break.

  4. Secure the rose / back plate by making the pilot holes and then screwing in the wood screws. Again, do not over tighten wood screws.

  5. Insert 2nd rose / back plate over spindle on other side of door and repeat points as above.

  6. Remember that there should be a little play in the door knobs to ensure that they can be turned within the rose plates. Do not over tighten as the mechanism will not operate.

  7. Please ensure that all stained door knobs receive a wipe with a lint free dry cloth to remove any residue left after production.

Quick delivery and door knob looks good. We have purchased extra strong latches as recommended. Pleased with my purchase so far, as have only put one door knob on. Only 12 more to go. 😬

Review update

The first door knob we received was attached too tightly to the spindle and was unusable, but the company responded very quickly and sent a replacement, which looks great.

Nickel Beehive Door Knobs

Great communication and very pleased with these door knobs. Bought 7 pairs and look good on the white 1930ís doors. Feel quite heavy and decent price for a pair. Glad I bought the large size

Beautiful, large door handles. Fast delivery

I have very big Victorian doors, and these handles are perfect. They are a well-proportioned large size, and are solid, heavy and well-made. The price was very good indeed, and delivery was quick and efficient. Thanks!

Ordered these instead of the smaller brass handle and the size suits our doors better. Pleased with the quality.

Very pleased with this door knob, very good quality and finish. I would like the company to consider more items e.g exterior and other fittings to compliment this fitting.
